I don’t know about you, but I LOVE toy shops. I think I always feel like a kid again when I go into one and I get filled with childhood memories of when I used to play at length with my Barbies, my Lego, my monopoly game! Now that I am a mum of two, I enjoy going into toy shops looking at toys that can create new memories for my kids.
I was very excited when I heard that a new toy shop was opening up in Lakeside and I popped round a few weeks ago to pay them a visit. Owl’s Toy Barn opened up at the Old Bakery (on Main Road) Lakeside at the beginning of June. What I love about this toy shop is that they carry all the big brands like Brio, Melissa and Doug, Wow Toys, Galt, but at very competitive prices.
The shop is small, but there is something for every age: train sets, crafts, fluffy soft toys, jewellery sets, bath toys, cars, dolls, puzzles and more! Because it is small, there is a definite sense of personalised service, and the willingness to help meet client requests.
Pay them a visit next time you are in Lakeside. They have a treasure trove of great gift ideas for birthdays and Christmas. They are currently running a competition on Facebook, check it out here
